Dark brown with a light head. The aroma is gasoline, some dark sugars and out-of-control esters. On the palate, dark fruits, some astringency and again with the gasoline. Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. Dark brown-black with scant head. Diacetyl in the aroma is buttery sweet. The palate is slick. Decent black licorice flavors redeem the butter problem. omhper (25753) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. Almost black with dense creamu off-white head. Roasty coffee aroma. Medium dry despite some underlying malt sweetness. Medium bodied with fairly soft mouthfeel. Evidenlty roasty, but never assaulting or edgy. Notes of tar before a salty licorice finish with quite some bitterness. Good, but not as fantastic as their pilsener.
